Brown Rice Paddu

Another healthy breakfast recipe is gonna add to my space today- it's paddu made of Brown Rice. We don't have brown rice everyday and I love to have brown rice only with some fish curry. So, I had some small batch of brown rice leftover in my pantry. Tried my hands on this Brown Rice paddu, and it came out really good. We enjoyed our breakfast with the coconut chutney(Restaurant/ Hotel Style) which I posted few weeks back. Click here for the chutney recipe.

You can also make this paddu plain. But I like to have it with onions, chillies and dhania leaves. Try your own variations, add some grated carrot for your kids to make it more colourful. 

So, here's the recipe for Brown Rice Paddu


For the batter

Urad Dal - 1/2 cup

Dosa Rice - 1/2 cup

Brown Rice - 1 cup

Avalakki/ Beaten Rice - 1/2 cup

Methi / Fenugreek seeds - 1/2 tsp

Salt to taste

For the toppings

Onions - Finely Chopped - 2

Green chillies - 3 Finely chopped

Few Curry leaves , chopped

Few freshly chopped coriander leaves.

Oil for greasing the paddu molds

Brown Rice Paddu


1. Wash and soak brown rice, dosa rice, urad dal , methi seeds and beaten rice for 5-6 hours.

2. Grind it to a smooth paste and allow it to ferment overnight.

3. Next morning, add in the toppings mentioned and salt . Mix well.

4. Heat and grease the paddu molds. Pour the paddu batter into the mold. Cover it and cook it on both sides flipping it once with a spoon or a knife , till it turns golden brown in color. Make sure to cook on a low - medium flame as this brown rice paddu takes few mins more time to cook than the ones we make with the regular rice.

Enjoy with your favorite chutney.
